Configuring PIM on MikroTik

Here is an example of configuring PIM on two MikroTik routers:

Let us configure the first MikroTik.
Add a pim interface and check:

routing pim interface add
routing pim interface p

Add the IP address of RP (this MikroTik):

routing pim rp add address=IP-ADDRESS

Let’s specify from which IP multicast traffic is allowed:

routing pim interface set alternative-subnets=238.0.0.0/24,239.0.0.0/24

Let’s configure the second MikroTik.
Add a pim interface to the uplink WAN port, I have ether1:

routing pim interface add interface=ether1
routing pim interface p

Add the IP address of the RP (the first MikroTik):

routing pim rp add address=IP-АДРЕС

Let’s specify the route of the multicast source: (first MikroTik):

ip route add 239.0.0.0/24 via IP-АДРЕС

Done.
